This is a decent airline for flying in China. The inflight entertainment leaves something to be desired, but on a short flight you can live without it. The check-in process was smooth and easy and I was impressed by it. Biggest disappointment was that we left late by about 20 minutes, but at least we arrived on time.

The plane was late on departure and the cabin temperature was kept too hot. Not a great food choice either. No inflight entertainment

The wife decided we needed a weekend away! Why not. But 2 days to get it organized?? She found the flight details, I booked and very happy it was Shenzhen Airlines. In economy, the only seats left, and enjoyed a short, comfortable flight, great service from smiling staff, food was not-too-shabby, leg-room a little on the short side for a...

I flew from Shenzhen to Chengdu. It was on time and landed 50 minutes earlier than what was scheduled in CTU. They served drinks and lunch that was good and the cabin crew was really kind and helpful. The only bad thing was that the flight was full of turbulence and so everything was unstable from the take off to...

Pleasantly surprised by the good service from the air stewardess while on board. They were polite and courteous when engaging the passengers. They were caring and even noticed that some of the passengers were feeling cold and willing to increase the temperature in the cabin so that they don’t feel cold
